CAMDEN — The Midcoast Maine Chapter of the New England Mountain Bike Association (MCNEMBA) is asking mountain bikers and other trail enthusiasts to help with some trail improvement days this fall.
Saturday, October 30 and Saturday, November 6, from 8:30 a.m. to 12 p.m.: Trail work rebuilding several trail corners. Meet by the toboggan chute parking area and hike or ride up to the trail work zone. Tools will be available.
Saturday, November 13: Rebuilding wooden drops. Meet at 8:30 a.m., in the toboggan chute parking area. The goal is to build three progressive height drops with predictable landing zones and a berm at the bottom to help direct riders to the next portion of trail.
MCNEMBA relies primarily on volunteer efforts to build, improve, and maintain trails in the Midcoast, according to MCNEMBA, in a news release. This summer, technical and drainage improvements were made on the popular pump track at the Camden Snow Bowl. Those improvements were led by MCNEMBA Board member Chris Rogers, with help from the crew at Sidecountry Trails. Funding for materials and equipment came from the Dig-In Grant from the International Mountain Bike Association (IMBA) and generous local donors.
“The club also looks forward to engaging more volunteers to ‘take a turn’ with a growing list of 2022 spring projects,” said MCNEMBA.
